The universe must want me to eat as many incarnations of cake as humanly possible, thus its appearance everywhere I turn. The universe also wants Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I to release this instant and not November 19th. In this vein, I came across a heaping plate of cupcake ideas yesterday, including a Harry Potter inspired Butterbeer Cupcake. Not having drank butterbeer before, I trust that the recipe provided tastes bangin’ as the ingredient lists contains the caveat “Do not use diet.” Amen.

The best part about cupcakes, next to taste, are the sky’s-the-limit decorations. On such a small surface it’s amazing what some people can do with icing, namely in the theme of corn products. These come from a site boasting the 20 Most Inventive Cupcakes Known to Man. With a title like that I dare not protest, but¬†clearly this¬†encyclopedia of cupcakes couldn’t be complete without a few maize looks. For those with less ambitious sprinkle intentions, the list includes a Brain Cupcake that is “just messed up…icing.”

Try not to combine your love of Harry Potter with the corn-on-the-cob ones. Bertie Botts Every Flavored Beans are cool for others to eat, but nobody wants to taste an earwax cupcake.
